New charges have been filed against a Jamestown man taken into custody for selling marijuana and prescription drugs out of his Fairmount Avenue pizza shop.
Jack E. Kincaid, 50, of 321 Newland Ave. has been additionally charged with three counts of fourth-degree criminal sale of marijuana and two counts of fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.
Investigators from the Jamestown Police Department and New York State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team added the charges after they executed two additional search warrants at 11 Fairview Ave. and 321 Newland Ave. in Jamestown.
At the Newland Avenue location, investigators located a large marijuana-growing operation, a large quantity of marijuana and cash. The location was either owned or was being rented by Kincaid, according to Captain Robert Samuelson of the Jamestown Police Department.
At 11 Fairview Ave., a large amount of marijuana and cash also was discovered.
On Wednesday, Kincaid was charged with one count each of fifth-degree criminal sale of marijuana and fourth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance as well as criminal nuisance after investigators learned that he was selling marijuana and prescription pills from his business as well as via delivery upon customer request.
Police say they received "several phone tips" of the coordinated operation before starting their investigation.
"In my 20 years I've never seen anything like this," Samuelson said. "It was pretty brazen if you ask me."
Kincaid was arraigned and committed to Chautauqua County Jail, where he will await a preliminary hearing set for Wednesday.
Anyone who may have information on the illegal sales of narcotics is asked to call the Jamestown Police Department's anonymous tip line at 483-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
